(A) Initiating an amendment.
(1) Whenever the public necessity, convenience, general welfare, or good zoning practice require, the Board of Supervisors may, by ordinance, amend, supplement, or change the regulations, district boundaries, or classifications of property. Any such amendment may be initiated:
(a) By resolution of the Board;
(b) By motion of the Planning Commission; or
(c) By submission of an application to the Land Use Administrator by the owner, contract purchaser with the owner’s written consent, or the owner’s agent for the property which is the subject of the proposed amendment.
(2) If an application for an amendment has been denied by the Board, substantially the same petition shall not be reconsidered within 365 days of the denial. This provision shall not impair the right of either the Planning Commission or the Board to propose any amendment to this chapter on its own motion at any time.
(B) Processing an amendment request. Amendments shall be processed in accordance with DMP-B as described in § 157.060(B)(2).
